in the george w. bush administration. cheney, rumsfeld and colin powell and richard r. medish who had risen with them in sight of the republican party. despite all the differences among the members of the previous administration, they shared some common traits and beliefs. all of them had backgrounds in the military or in the pentagon and this was true of the secretary of state who had been the chairman of that joint chiefs of staff. richard r. medish as it was of cheney and rumsfeld. it's rare to have an administration with the former secretary of defense. and they also shared some common beliefs. america was unquestionably a force for good in the world. a military power was of supreme importance and in fact the disagreements among them were halgand win force should be used for the united states should be saved for the big war were used for house it was in iraq. immediately after obama's election in 2008i decided i wanted to take a look at the democrats over the same time period. many of my books have covered the same time period from the 60's through the present day. and i kind of come ac
. the person who bought the george w. bush's had had a smile on his face. he did not waste a single dollar on florida. the big smile on his face men to it was to " -- meant that it was too close for comfort. they did not waste any money in florida because they won by 530 votes, whatever it was. they obviously do not think like that. they are obviously not trying to get efficiency in that particular way. but advertising matters at the margin. you look at the 2000 election and it was close. 2004 was close, also. 70,000 votes with the other way in ohio. president john kerry, two dozen to a big republican victory taking back the senate. -- in 2002, a big republican victory taking back the senate. advertising clearly it was not decisive in other elections, as well. may i tell you whether it is 1.4% or 1.6%? no. i can say that in election where the engine is likely to matter -- where the margin is likely to matter, those advertisements can be decisive. what are they trying to do? you have to understand the fundamentals of an election. and why the ads are so -. presidential elections are a refere
h.w. bush and in 2004 by george w. bush against john kerry, the swift boating. all three of these politicians come from massachusetts. i wonder if it's something in the water there. but what you're seeing is very carefully constructed box. there are small nails that go into the box and there's some big rivets that go in there. the small nails are things like this controversy the last three or four days of whether he was -- whether romney was in charge of bain capital from 1999 to 2002, but the biggest piece of this argument are the tax returns. romney is going to be hammered on these tax returns until he releases them, and a number of republicans are now saying that. >> let me show you also the way the romney campaign has counter-attacked because they have released an ad featuring journalists. watch this. >> when the president was elected, he talked about hope and change. whatever happened to hope and change? now it seems he's just coming right out of the box with these old-fashioned negative ads. >> by starting negative, by going extremely tough and extremely hard, looki
for president george w. bush. paul begala is a democratic strategist and adviser to a pro-obama super pac. paul, let's begin with you. as you've heard, the obama campaign was basically saying mitt romney is either a criminal or he's a liar. and romney's campaign is calling on the obama campaign to apologize. saying it's demeaning to the office of the president. do you think, in fact, an apology is necessary, paul? >> no, toughen up, mitt. this is campaigns. this is politics. here's what thomas jefferson campaign said about john adams. they called him a hideous her farm ra diedic character. adams said worse things about jefferson. if you're not tough enough to stand up to stephanie cutter, how are you going to stand up to vladimir putin, i mean, come on. >> even if it turns out to be completely untrue, what they say. >> no, this is completely true. there are signed documents that list him as the ceo. there are other documents that he signed that are sworn that said he had nothing to do with the company at the time. his public financial disclosure documents. one of them is wrong. either he was th
're look at is much more the george w. bush campaign in 2004. >> the accusations that john kerry -- >> reporter: he's talking about the swiftboat campaign. in which john kerry was demonized over what his campaign considered an attribute. his decorated service as a soldier in vietnam. the swiftboat ads, backed by a group of pro-bush veterans, questioned the democratic challenger's conduct in the war, his anti-war activities later and his patriotism. kerry was slow to respond and never very effective in refuting their claims. even though his critics offered little in the way of proof. he lost the election of course. for many democrats, swiftboating became a catch-all term for any unfair, untrue, personal assault on a candidate. >> romney's companies -- >> reporter: but if the president is troubled by the comparison of his bain attacks to the republican swiftboating, he's not showing it. >> when you're president, everything is called into question. >> reporter: romney has been spurred to hit back fast. >> as much as a presidential election is a referendum on the incumbent, the cllen
years, george h.w. b bush, 14 years. these are people who became to president it makes you wonder, what is in there? >> colby? >> 57% of the american people want him to releashis tax returns. you have republicans who want him to release hisax returns. i was thinking this was a non- issue until i heard george will say this makes you wonder if he has something to hide. >> roger? >> this is a loser of anan issue for george romney. >> mitt romneney. george is the father. >>itt romney, sorry. democratic surrogates are going around and saying that one man has seen romney's tax returns. it was john mccain, when he was a vetting him for vice president. the first thing mcca did was say, "taiwan sarahalin instead." -- i want sarah palin instead." why not t just do it? why not just tell us what was in the cayman islands, the swiss bank accounts? romney separatesimlf from the massive average american people by doing this. >> first of all, cain said that he look at them and his answswer was not to go for sarah palin. his answer was, "i look in them there was nothing in them." ther he is lying and yo
you think that it's not effective for the obama camp to keep blaming george w. bush and what they inherited? >> i wouldn't blame president bush but i would continue to point out i said earlier, andrea, it's good for people to remember that we were losing 750,000 jobs a month when the president took over. that's what he's inherited. though 84,000 may not sound like much in terms of a gain, it's a whole lot better than losing 750,000. i think he's doing the right thing there. he's also doing the right thing in stressing his jobs bill. his jobs bill contained 11 separate components, almost all of which republicans had supported in the past, and they essentially stonewalled him and stopped any progress from things that were like $50 billion of spending on infrastructure we know creates well-paying jobs on the construction sites and back in our factories, and it's hard to understand why they would obstruct that type o initiative. >> what about the tax cuts? michael steele, do you think the republicans really have a great talking point when they talk about tax cuts for millionaires

on negative ads. former white house press secretary for george w. bush ari fleisher. cnn contributor paul begala. joins me as well. paul, you advise the super pac which has run a lot of these negative ads many thousands of times. negative campaigning, you're more than okay with it? >> totally, absolutely. the ads to the pac i advise which is priorities usa action. they have featured the most powerful ads. and the ones we have run the most of. the real words of real people that mitt romney laid off. he came and took over these companies. he loaded them up with debt. he in some cases he bankrupted them. paid himself millions. and canceled the health benefits. we sent cameras to places like marion, indiana, kansas city and we filmed these people and their heartbreaking stories. the "los angeles times," "l.a. times," terrific journalist, called our ad the most effective democratic ad this year. >> so did the president say -- can the president say there's been a slew of positive ads? >> yeah, i don't know how many is in a slew. i thought you nailed ax pretty well on this. my job i think in thi

for the republican candidate including george h.w. bush, including bob dole. i've been involved now six presidential campaigns and now the seventh. it's great to see steve's results as an entrepreneur. i know he was great with john mccain. we used to talk about what he was up to back home. as he said, if you're an entrepreneur and you're a risk taker, you need a new business environment. part of that is going to be dictated by washington. right now with the taxes and regulations, healthcare cost, the uncertainty over energy, all the unpredictability in our economy, it's difficult to get people to take a risk and make an investment and do what steve has done. my dad is a small business guy who took a big risk and left his job and start his own business. later years i asked him whether he would do it again, he had so said i don't know. there's so much uncertainty out there. frankly you have a government in washington who don't seem to get it and it's making it difficult to create jobs. steve is concerned now. on monday i will be helping the romney victory effort in boston. i will be speaking at couple
's day, president obama had played 100 rounds of golf. then there's the subject of vacations. george w. bush spent all or part of 490 days at his ranch in texas over eight years in office. not to mention the 487 days at camp david according to knoller. ronald reagan spent almost a year near santa barbara. those trips were a top down directive. in her book "reagan: an american story" adriana bosh talked about something earlier in their time at the white house. deever found the president doing inspecting his schedule which the president lamented didn't include ranch time. deever said that was because of the press being critical of his time outside of washington. his answer. you can tell me a lot of things and i'll do them. but you're not going to tell me the more i get to the ranch. i'm convinced the more auch often i get to the ranch the longer i live. i'm going to the ranch. you can put it in there now. being on vacation doesn't mean the same thing to a president or presidential candidate to the rest of us fop have the job is to always be plugged in or ready to take a call or make a de

, let me go to you. when you look at the record, president obama released 12 years. george w. bush, eight years. george romney his own father, 12 years. and when you hear this raise to the romney campaign he's been inaccurately saying teresa heinz kerry didn't releez her taxes in 2004. let me show you what he says about mrs. kerry. >> john kerry ran for president. his wife who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. somehow this wasn't an issue. >> now, i might add the kerry campaign -- not the campaign but his office, he's not running anymore. came back with this. the romney campaign needs to stop getting their facts wrong. mitt romney ought to speak for himself rather than making inaccurate comments about teresa. it's interesting to me, erin. first he was saying kerry only put out two years and it ended up being five. he's trying to do everything he can to deflect from answering. why he doesn't do what moes people have done. >> well, remember also, teresa heinz kerry didn't run for president. john kerry did. and mitt romney is running for presiden
to make the argument that mitt romney's foreign policy as a return to george w. bush. he left office very unpopular with respect to his foreign policy. obama will argue that he inherited a mess, at a less secure world, and he has made it more secure. mitt romney is advocating the same policies as george w. bush and will try to paint them as being reckless, too quick to use force, and the like. one more direct line of attack that was tried already was mitt romney did make some statement saying that he did not think we should gallivant around the world and spend billions of dollars trying to find one person. he criticized obama's statement that he would go inside pakistan after bin laden. obama will try to truck that out to show that mitt romney is not tough on terrorism. i think he will try to make the argument that mitt romney is trapped in the past and his statements that russia is our number one geopolitical cell was mocked by a lot of people in the foreign-policy establishment, including a lot of republicans. the arms control agreement had very strong bipartisan support. they were kind
candidates had done? >> well, you know, george bush, george w. bush. the other candidated optded out of the public finances. personally, i would have stayed in. but that's because i'm a different kind of democrat. the president had a lot of supporters, a lot of money on the table in 2008. in my judgment it was spent very well. he won the race. this time it's a lot different. he will have to continue to raise money. maybe a lot smaller amount than he did before. >> is there a different optically, and people look at this. average folks for romney to go to a fund-raiser -- political fund raiser in the hamptons and he is a billionaire, as we all know. and going for fund-raisers there. what's the difference, if anything? >> i can't see it. reporters are able to get more unfortunate quotes from the people attending. that is for people attending the fund-raiser. here's the other thing to take in mind, and jim's report pointed to it. the obama campaign is in real danger of misunderstanding what happened with the bush campaign in 2004. the lesson they've taken is when you have a so-so economy
since 1988 when george h.w. bush carried it that year. look, we see the likes of joe biden now spending a lot of time in pennsylvania. let's not forget, go back to 2008, wolf, when president obama back in 2008 said that very ill-fated phrase. he said people are clinging to their guns and their religion. that is something that will not play very well in pennsylvania. but also in pennsylvania it also shows that in fact when you look at these numbers right here as far as television advertising right now, we've seen barack obama is spending money right now. more than $3 million right now, wolf, he is spending on tv advertising so far to carry his message. >> yeah. he doesn't want to take any chances. by the way, he said those less than artful words out in san francisco. >> he did. but it carried back. >> everybody heard it immediately all over the place. thanks very much. >>> take a look at this. we have some live pictures of the president of the united states in sandusky, ohio. there he is at the top of your screen in the middle there. he's shaking hands, meeting with folks. the president
's right. but george w. bush should have gone in his first term too and he did not. he's making the mistake his predecessor made. it's a valid criticism. the president of either party needs to go to israel, support israel. >> there's pictures when he was there in 2008 as a candidate. but as president, mary, he went to egypt, turkey, a whole bunch of other countries. >> but bush was not anti-israel even though he didn't go his first term. president obama has been very strongly supportive of israel as president and he will be if and when he gets a second term. that's the most important. >> that's not the reflection or the opinion of those who know the most about israel. they do not think he's been strong on israel. and i'd like to remind everybody what's happening in the first term -- >> i will say as someone who studied the u.s.-israeli relationship for a long, long time on a military to military relationship to intelligence is very strong right now between the united states and israel. there may be some personal irritation between netanyahu and president obama, but on a substantiative issue
's bullet proof vest. they finally did but only after years of fighting over this issue. george w. bush overturned the ban on assault weapons. obama has to reinstate that ban, get rid of the high capacity magazine. we're turning into a gun happy, gun crazy country and i'm more concerned that their motto is don't tread on me. well, my motto is don't tread on the american people anymore. host: that was not oscar, that was jennifer, thank you very much for the call from new york city. jermaine has this point,: the denver post has punished some -- published some of the most horrific shootings in history, leading the list is suspect james egan holmes, who shot 71 people, killing 12. in the virginia tech shooting, # two were killed, 27 wounded, in 1966, charles whitman, 47 people shot, 16 were killed, 31 wounded, killeen, texas, 45 people were shot at luby's cafeteria, 23 fatally shot, at mcdonald's in san ysidro, california, 40 people shot, 19 wounded, and at columbine high school in littleton, colorado, 39 people were shot, 13 died, 26 wounded, the list is available at denver post.com. than
insular campaign. one of the problems mitt romney has is very much like what george w. bush had, which is a great deal of loyalty to his staff. and doesn't necessarily cut strings when it's time. i'm concerned about eric fehrnstrom and he gave the etch-a-sketch remark and internally romney people seem to be saying they're upset with him for doing that. at the same time, though, the president up until the supreme court gave him a win last week had a significant series of bad weeks. polling isn't going well in the battle grounds. even cnn has him behind mitt romney in battle grounds. and no one wants to talk about should barack obama's team do this. i don't know if it's fair to talk about mitt romney's team when they're neck and neck in the polls and he hadn't done anything wrong in the past few weeks. >> right. and this is a campaign being run out of massachusetts so there are a lot of consultants wanting in. but to change your campaign at this point would be so destabilizing and demoralizing. you want to reach out and grow your campaign is what i think i'm hearing eric say. but when yo
businessmen we had as president were george w. bush and herbert hoover. one led us into the great recession, the other led us into the great depression. >> catherine crier, keith boykin, john bramnick, great to have you with us. great discussion tonight. thank you. >>> coming up, the tea partiers say they hate government spending, but they're spending lots of your tax money to ride in style. hypocrisy on wheels when we come back. ask me what it's like when my tempur-pedic moves. why not talk to someone who owns an adjustable version of the most highly recommended bed in america? ask me about my tempur advanced ergo. goes up. goes up. ask me what it's like to get a massage anytime you want. goes down. goes down.

the country's focus on education, it seems like at one point, not long ago, even under george w. bush, we kind of could come together on the subject and say this has got to be a priority. but now it has become so partisan, i wonder as someone who is in a school setting in the hollywood vein but also is working on issues that affect students, what you make of that. >> well, it's kind of interesting that we look back to the george bush era when we could all get along. yeah, it's just so important. the santorum comment about everybody should have a college education, when a snob. it's almost as if we're dumbing ourselves down. a college education is a terrific opportunity for a child to bloom and grow. i know for me it awakened my natural curiosity for the first time in my life. it was a terrific experience. if a kid wants to go to school now it's really difficult. grants and scholarships are down, way, way down, and there are so many student loans out there that there's all this fine print and these people, kids and parents, go into these not knowing what they're saying and that's why this colle
remembers, george w. bush pulled away from john kerry. it was actually very tight before that as you see from this nbc news numbers, and once bush pulled away in late august and the very first week of september, he never looked back. this idea that no one's paying attention is sometimes disproven by the fact that if you get branded with maybe not the details, but the notion that you're not being straight, you're not trustworthy or the thing you're running on turns out to be bankrupt and you have to run from it, right, does that have a risk that by the time the conventions come it's too late for mitt romney? >> if i recall correctly, karl rove has always said he beat john kerry in like the spring of 2004, when they were hammering him with ads, where they created perception of him as an elite foppish flip-flopper. these earlier perceptions even if you're not paying attention can be very powerful. people do, are like tuned in. they do have it in the background. they understand something about bain and swiss bank account and in some ways it can be even more effective if it's kind of vague an
